Volunteering is not only good for the organization you choose to help, but it’s good for you! Did you know volunteering can not only help advance your career, but it’s good for the mind and body, and it helps you make new friends. If you choose to give of yourself two or three hours per week, SOCKS could use your help. We need volunteers to help clean the cat and kitten shelter. The ideal volunteer time period would be 9 a.m. to noon weekdays, but we can use help each day until we close at 5 p.m. After an orientation, you will help create and maintain a clean, healthy environment for the cats and kittens, as well as a more pleasant place for visitors, increasing the chances of adoption for our furry residents.  If you think this is something you would like to do, please fill out the volunteer application and email it to socks@saveourcatsandkittens.com along with a note telling us your schedule preferences. If you prefer, you may bring your application to the shelter during regular operating hours and discuss it in person. SOCKS is at 498 Carmel Drive, Fort Walton Beach. Call 863-5756 or email socks@saveourcatsandkittens.com .
